Nothing holds a candle to you
No one burns the wick like you do
I expected heat, but winter crept inside your velvet eyes

Press down let me feel the oil
Let go, let me take control
I couldn't bear to leave your scent behind your eyes

And little did I know, you'd need me in the long run
And little did I know, I'd need you too

Well dark is just a phrase we use
To mark the phase illuminating
Nothing past the surface, you can't see it, but I swear to you its there

And mirrors make your face look thin
Like hurricanes we stop to spin
And little did I know I'd turn around and break the chair I was sitting in

And little did I know, you'd need me in the long run
And little did I know, I'd need you too

And if the reason why you're here
Is this the safest place you know?
Took a million miles to get here
Got a few more steps to go
There's no reason to reset this, put to rest your local doubts
All our favorite storytellers paved their way through word of mouth
So I'm not begging you for silence, or a place within your heart
I can find it on my own as long as I know where to start
Never thought that we'd be standing here, no reason to look back
And a we're arm and arm I'm wondering what more I'd want to have

And little did I know, you'd need me in the long run
And little did I know, I'd need you too

about

The Siege Perilous Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Formed in 2008, the Siege Perilous is a melodic Wisconsin alternative rock outfit that delivers an engaging live show that draws from three albums worth of original arena-style anthems in the vein of the Goo Goo Dolls, Jimmy Eat World, and Jack's Mannequin.

"A sound similar to some of the classic alternative albums of the 90's, with a updated influence of today's indie superstars."

Track Name: The Long Run
No one holds a candle to you
No one burns the wick like you do
I expected heat but winter crept inside your velvet eyes

Press down, let me feel the oil
Let go, let me take control
I couldn't bear to leave your scent behind your eyes

And little did I know
You'd need me
In the long run
And little did I know
I'd need you too

Dark is just a phrase we use
To mark the phase illuminating
Nothing past the surface
You can't see it, but I swear to you, its there

And mirrors make your face look thin
Like hurricanes we stopped to spin
And little did I know I'd turn around and break the chair I was sitting in

And if the reason why you're here
Is this the safest place you know
We walked a million miles to get here
Got a few more steps to go
And I'm not looking to reset this, put to rest your local doubts
All our favorite storytellers paved their way through word of mouth
So I'm not begging you for silence
Or a place within your heart
I can find it on my own as long as I know where to start
I never thought that we'd be standing here
No reason to look back
But as we're arm and arm I'm wondering
What more I'd want to have
